I don't want to just entertain people; I want to make them think.

I don't want to just tell stories; I want to tell the truth.

I am an independent animator specializing in documentary and non-fiction filmmaking. I strive to create media that offers a feast for the eyes and the mind. I love taking on projects that expand my knowledge of complex and fascinating subjects, from special relativity to mangrove ecology. Life is too short not to learn something every day!

Currently, I'm at the University of Southern California producing my senior thesis film, an experimental documentary about timekeeping. For more info and updates, check out my Facebook page!

If you are a scientist, educator, or creator interested in collaborating on a project, please contact me. I look forward to hearing your ideas.

Thanks for visiting!
